Indian Birth Certificate Attestation
To sponsor your children and allow them to live in the UAE as residents, you’re going to have to prove that you are their parent.
The UAE requires all foreign nationals with children born in other countries to provide attested birth certificates from the issuing country. The purpose of getting the document attested is to guarantee its authenticity.
In India and other countries, the government keeps records of daily births and offers parents birth certificates to acknowledge that their child’s birth has been registered. The birth certificate contains crucial information about the child, including the parents’ names, the date/time of the delivery, and the country of birth.
The Process of getting an Indian Birth Certificate Attested
Attestation for an Indian birth certificate requires multiple steps, just like attestation for any other document.
But because the process requires submitting the birth certificate to several Indian and UAE authorities, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. The process can be complicated; experienced attestation services companies can complete it smoothly.
An attestation services company can collect, drop off, and courier documents on your behalf, so you don’t have to do the running around yourself.
Attestation of an Indian birth certificate includes the following steps:
Your child’s birth certificate will need to be legalized in India at the local and national levels before being submitted to UAE authorities.
A notary will stamp and sign the birth certificate to prove that it is genuine. In India, the attestation of personal and educational documents starts from the notary.
After the notary has legalized the birth certificate, we must submit it to the Home Department.
In some rare cases, the Sub-Divisional Magistrate may have to attest the certificate; sometimes, it’s optional; other times, it’s mandatory.
Ministry of External Affairs
In India, the Ministry of External Affairs gives the final stamp of approval for birth certificate attestation. After the ministry stamps the document, you can use it abroad.
After the Indian attestation is completed, we will send it to the UAE embassy in New Delhi before sending it back to the UAE.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA)
In the UAE, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) gives the last stamp of approval, after which you can use the attested birth certificate to apply for a visa.
